Current Drought Conditions
Texas is no stranger to drought. The seven-year drought of record in the 1950s was a turning point in Texas history that led to the formation of the Texas Water Development Board. Since then, Texas has faced several droughts including the most recent and most severe drought that began in 2011. The excellent Water Data for Texas website brings together relevant resources, links, data and analyses to provide updated information on drought in Texas.
